    Alerted by numerous phone calls during the night from Wednesday to Thursday, the police of the Marseille city have set up a real device to put an end to this illegal party. Five individuals were arrested and 156 people fined.

    The more the merrier, the more we laugh … until the quadrangle. During the night from Thursday to Friday, the Bouches-du-#Rhône police officers put an end to a clandestine evening organized in the 10th arrondissement in Marseille.

    As revealed Provence, the police officers of the departmental night service were alerted, around 1:30 am, by telephone calls from a large gathering of vehicles and coming and going around a room located rue François-#Mauriac in the Phocaean city.

    A special device was then set up with a staff of 80 people (night service, southern division and CRS) before going to the scene of this evening which brought together around 300 people. While some may have left the representatives of the police, the majority of the participants were inside.

    Also according to our colleagues, 156 people were fined for non-compliance with the ban on gatherings related to the management of the health crisis. They were each fined 135 euros.

    In addition, three individuals were arrested and placed in police custody. One is considered to be the organizer of the evening and the other two men are interviewed for having committed violence on the police during their intervention. Two other people were apprehended within hours of the operation.
